/ About world walking day
- 24hours around the globe
In 2020, as the world faced a global pandemic disrupting our societies, grassroots sports, health systems, and governments worldwide, we needed to come together and show that the Global Sport for All Movement could promote transnational solidarity and keep us united during trying times. Thus was born the idea of TAFISA World Walking Day – 24 Hours Around the Globe, the most inclusive and accessible 24-hour relay around the world.
The event aims to build bridges and connections between people. Beyond a simple event, it provides a platform for raising awareness and sharing causes and values important to you, and shows that the Sport for All Movement stands together and united to create a better world.
